Supplementary Material

The supplementary material provide information on (1) the physicochemical properties of the soil used in the study, (2) the carbon values from the soil microbial biomass and (3) a set of fingerprints data used to obtain the table 2 results.

Supplementary Data 1. Physicochemical properties of the Limagne basin soil (chernozem soil according to FAO classification), determined using standard protocols of the Arras Soil Analysis Laboratory (INRA, France).

Supplementary Data 2. Carbon from soil microbial biomass (μg.g-1dw), according to Lin and Brookes formula [16], depending on soil treatments: control (T), Callisto® 1×FR (C1) and 10×FR (C10), Dual Gold® 1×FR (DG1) and 10×FR (DG10), and Callisto®/Dual Gold® Mix 1×FR (M1) and 10×FR (M10) and sampling dates.

Supplementary Data 3. DGGE gels of (a) bacterial communities (n=3) at 2 days after treatment: control (T), Dual Gold® 10×FR (DG10), and Callisto®/Dual Gold® Mix 1×FR (M1) and 10×FR (M10), and (b) fungal communities at 42 and 93 days after treatment: control (T), Callisto® 1×FR (C1) and 10×FR (C10), Dual Gold® 1×FR (DG1) and 10×FR (DG10), and Callisto®/Dual Gold® Mix 1×FR (M1) and 10×FR (M10).
